Student Support

Play Is The Way

The school has adopted this philosophy of behaviour education and student self-regulation that fosters independent, self-motivated, empathetic, life-long learners.

The focus is on 5 key principles:

  • It takes great strength to be sensible
  • Treat others as you would like to be treated
  • Be Brave - Participate to progress
  • Have reasons for the things you say and do
  • Pursue your personal best no matter who you work with

Special Needs and Students with Disabilities

We have students with special curriculum needs ranging from a disability to a learning difficulty, social issues and language issues. Programs and support for these students are managed by the Assistant Principal for Student Services and the Student review Team. Where possible, programs and support is tailored for individual students through a variety of programs.

Gifted Education

The school has identified a number of students who fit in the gifted range. The Student Review Team and Assistant Principal are responsible for supporting the needs of these students. Class teachers have been involved in training over several years to develop their ability to cater for gifted students within their everyday classroom program.
